Nothing fancy here, just the same as for PDF images:

\pdfximage{filename.jpg}        % reads the image
\pdfrefximage\pdflastximage  % includes it

More details are provided in the sample file samplepdf.tex in the 
directory /Library/teTeX/share/texmf/doc/pdftex/base/, where it is 
shown how to include the same picture in all four formats: PDF, PNG, 
TIFF and JPEG. Actually I find this file more useful than pdfTeX's 
manual itself. From the comments in this file:

% images can be included with pdftex using \pdfximage. Supported formats
% are determined by file name extension:
%   .pdf/.PDF:              PDF
%   .png/.PNG:              PNG
%   .tif/.TIF/.tiff/.TIFF:  TIFF
%   .jpg/.JPG/.jpeg/.JPEG:  JPEG
